Below The Beltway

I believe in the free speech that liberals used to believe in, the economic freedom that conservatives used to believe in, and the personal freedom that America used to believe in.

Andrew Cline writes in the Wall Street Journal that Ron Paul may end up giving the GOP quite a surprise next Tuesday: Many Republican operatives in New Hampshire, even those affiliated with other campaigns, think Mr. Paul is headed for an impressive, double-digit performance. That he has been polling in the high single digits for […]

The End Of The Huckaboom

With only three days left until the Iowa Caucuses, and one of those days a holiday that most people will spend watching football, it looks like Mike Huckabee may have peaked too early: Among Republicans, the poll shows Mitt Romney regaining a slight lead over Mike Huckabee — 27 percent to 24 percent — although […]

After a long holiday spent with family and lots of fun, we’re finally back in town for good. Regular blogging to resume later today, or maybe tomorrow, depending on what I’m up for.

Holiday Hiatus Time

by @ Friday, December 21st, 2007. Filed under Blogging, Holidays, News About The Site

It’s time to take the annual holiday hiatus again. I’d like to say regular blogging will resume after January 1st, but given the fact that we’re two weeks away from a the beginning of what will undoubtably be a very interesting political year, I doubt that will be the case.

by @ Friday, December 21st, 2007. Filed under 2008 Election, Mike Huckabee, Politics

Dispatches from the campaign trail: [Huckabee's]appeal is mainly to people who like the idea of “a man of convictions,” not one who behaves like a conventional, pandering politician. But there are times when even the purest of truth-speakers must bow before the demands of a campaign for the highest office. “Who is your favorite author?” […]

What’s So Bad About Mike Huckabee ?

George Will sums it up nicely: Huckabee’s campaign actually is what Rudy Giuliani’s candidacy is misdescribed as being — a comprehensive apostasy against core Republican beliefs. Giuliani departs from recent Republican stances regarding two issues — abortion and the recognition by law of same-sex couples. Huckabee’s radical candidacy broadly repudiates core Republican policies such as […]
